  • Our Philosophy

    The philosophy of the Herricks School Counseling and Guidance Department is that every student will acquire the academic, career, social and emotional skills to reach his or her fullest potential. Our department offers a comprehensive developmental program that is an integral component of the total educational experience for all students. We are committed to assisting each individual in attaining self-understanding and the skills and strategies necessary to become lifelong learners, who are prepared to make informed decisions within the context of an ever-changing world. We recognize the dignity and worth of all students and their right to personalized educational services. We are dedicated to creating a collaborative partnership with students, parents, teachers and administrators, by advocating for students and addressing the needs of our diverse community.
